The Team Fortress 2 Gamemode - YOUR ADVISORS ARE ALL MAGETS HATCHED FROM MUTANT MAGET EGGS

[release]

http://peniscorp.com/stuff/vinh/tf2gm_banner.png

What is this?
This is a gamemode which is aiming to be a near-perfect replica of Team Fortress 2 for Garry’s Mod, and is also oriented towards playing on Half Life 2 levels as TF2 characters. This means that it will be a Lua-powered, open source version of TF2 with all the added advantages that Garry’s Mod has to offer. Right now it is only a sandbox-like gamemode with no actual goal, but all game rules from TF2 will eventually be added, as well as a cooperative campaign mode.

Development on this gamemode has recently restarted but there is currently no working revision available. There will be a release on a new SVN repository once the major Garry’s Mod update (known as Garry’s Mod 13) comes out. Please be patient!

General gameplay stuff:

• Damage: (98%) Need to tweak damage done by NPCs.
• Crits: (95%) Completely rewrote the crits system, it is now pretty much reliable, unless a few bugs show up on multiplayer.
• Teams: (90%) Need to modify the team IDs so they match the way TF2 handles teams (right now, the RED team is 1, the BLU team is 2, in TF2 the RED team is 2 and the BLU team is 3).
• HUD: (96%) Main HUD elements are pretty much done, now only needs per-weapon HUD elements such as charging bars.

Classes:

• Scout: (85%) Missing weapons: Bonk! Atomic Punch, Crit-a-Cola, Sandman, Fan-o-War.
• Soldier: (85%) Needs tweaks on rocket jumping, working speed boost for Discplinary Action, missing weapons: Buff Banner, Battalion’s Backup, Concheror.
• Pyro: (80%) Needs airblast and a few flamethrower tweaks, missing weapons: Detonator, Phlogistinator, Manmelter.
• Demoman: (90%) Need to draw Scottish Resistance bombs through walls, tweak physics for grenades and stickies.
• Heavy: (90%) Missing weapons: Natascha, Buffalo Steak Sandvich, Holiday Punch.
• Engineer: (75%) Needs Teleporters, a correct implementation of buildings, a perfectly working build PDA, a demolish PDA. Also revenge crits and hauling buildings.
• Medic: (50%) Needs Übercharge. With possibly a slight damage buff that makes NPCs worth healing.
• Sniper: (80%) Needs serious fixes on the Huntsman (arrows getting stuck at weird angles, headshots failing due to crappy hitbox detection, etc…) and a Jarate that doesn’t instantly refill.
• Spy: (25%) Needs working Sapper, cloaking, disguise kit. And loads of missing weapons due to the lack of disguising and cloaking.

TF2 specific stuff:

• Loadout: (60%) Items are done, now needs a proper loadout and backpack system, and a nice interface for it.
• Common game mechanics: (50%) Round timer almost finished, respawn wave time not done yet.
• CTF: (5%) The only thing I have right now is a briefcase, and it’s buggy as hell.
• CP: (40%) Entities are halfway finished, need to implement capturing.
• Arena/KoTH: (0%) Not yet.
• Payload/Payload Race: (0%) Not yet.

HL2 stuff:

• Cooperative HL2 campaign: (10%) Map changes are working properly on multiplayer, although the map end trigger works in a pretty crude way right now.

Reservinh, under request.

Second reserved post by the op.

So I’m assuming garry has added the functions that the lack of previously were stoppong you from developing it further?

Exactly. Although they are only available in the beta right now, which is why I’m waiting for the big update to be released before releasing a new revision.

The NPCs look a bit un-responsive in the videos. By which I mean they don’t give a fuck if they take a rocket to the face.

That never really occured to me. Most of the times they die when they take a rocket to the face, I’m not sure how else they would react. Unless you’re talking about the missing animations, NPCs tend to screw up on Linux dedicated servers because some animations aren’t loaded correctly, so they just do weird shit whenever they are supposed to perform certain actions, like taking cover.

I think he means the fact they just keep standing there and shooting after taking a rocket in the face and surviving, instead of taking cover to ensure they don’t take any more damage.

This looks pretty damn good.

You can thank the source AI for that.

Anyway, it’s great to see this finally being revived again. Good luck.

Progress looks great, glad to see this still going.

-snip- nvm

Wow. Amazing stuff. This is the kind of thing Gmod is great for!

And I have to know, is the soldier in the thread picture holding his rocket launcher backwards?

Nope, he isn’t. Original is held like that.

Didn’t know this was still going on. Good work so far.

Great work, and great to see this alive again. Do you happen to know or estimate a time of when the big update might become released? Or maybe patch the old version so we’re able to play with a old version in the mean time, or no? Just gonna happen out of no where when we least expect it?

Well, we’re not going to play the old revision, because it just doesn’t work. We have to just wait for the big GMod update. In the meantime, we play TF2.

I’m sure this will be one of these good gamemodes for GMOD (Top 10 Gamemodes)

Very least this will be awesome.

I played this gamemode a LOONG ago.

Since it broke, i didnt played gmod that much.

Now, i will play it alot again!
